hello from MA

Hello everyone - just got my first "real" digital camera in December. (had a Nikon p&s for a few years now, but that was just for snapshots)

I've been around SLR's for a while though, about 15 yrs.
Sold most of my film SLR's, two Yashicas and a Pentax *ist 35mm, kept the ZX-M "just in case" - but now I'm thinking by the time I use that again, I'll probably buy another digital body to have a backup...

anyway, don't want to bore anyone to death. Have a nice day!

Seems we have several new members from Massachusetts.

I grew up in Lexington, and spent most of my adult life in the Framingham and Milford areas before moving south.

Welocme to the forum.

It's funny you say that - I'm originally from Pennsylvania, and whenever it comes up in conversation my relatives ask how close Boston is...

I'm in Berkshire County, so it's about as far away from Boston as it gets, and still in the state. (Even the cable company is talking about dropping the Boston local tv stations)

Oh well! I'd love to be closer to a bigger city.. I used to live in Pittsburgh - I wish I could transplant the company i work for there, that was a nice city.

Welcome to all you Western Massachusetts people. I get up to the Berkshires occasionally, including an annual astronomy event in the Commington/ Worthington area. This year I will be taking my K100D with me for some dark sky photography.

I'm due South of you in Hamden CT. That's Connecticut for our friend from Mississauga (been there too!).
